Medical Cannabis Europe
15th and 16th September 2022

National Association of Pharmacies
Lisbon, Portugal

Framework

In the past few years, the medical cannabis industry has experienced exponential growth with the legalization to sell and consume medicinal cannabis products, in several countries in Europe. The increasing demand for these products and the profit margins associated, led several investors to invest in the medicinal cannabis market. According to several analysts, this market size has the potential to reach 3.2 billion euros by the end of 2025.

In this context, the medical cannabis industry, as well as all involved stakeholders are facing the main challenge of interpretation and be compliance with EU-GACP and EU-GMP regulations to be able to place cannabis-based products for medicinal purposes on the market demonstrating consistency, quality, efficacy and patient safety.

These are the mandatory assumptions for health authorities and patients’ confidence in the medical cannabis industry, which will lead to the development of this market in Portugal.

Purpose

The Medical Cannabis Europe Conference was specially developed to debate and clarify doubts regarding the applicable regulations to the cultivation, manufacture and distribution of cannabis-based products for medicinal purposes in Portugal and Europe. This conference will feature international and local experts on medical cannabis that will provide insights into the European market and address aspects such as applicable regulations and expectations of the authority in licensing inspections.
